I have 1000s of travel photos that I never seem to get around to scrapping so for quite awhile I have been thinking that a Travel Challenge would be fun.
Please ONLY post your los in the Challenge gallery if they are for the vote.

Marty you are a machine! And I say that in the nicest possible way! You just go and go both traveling and scrapping.

I didn't even get mine done for October! Who knows about November!

Keep them coming - they are always interesting and beautiful.

And now, a LO for sharing. I have more on deck -- I've been scrapping all weekend, but no photos yet. My goal is to finish an album about our February, 2013 trip to Cancun before the end of the month!

Hope everyone has a scrappin' good weekend.

I was going to say it's getting cold here too, but I live in New Mexico...it's not exactly Alaska cold!

It's still not bikini weather, though, so I'm enjoying memories of warm vacations!

HI everyone! Glad to see so many returning faces and so many new ones.

Liberty I was thinking of you the other day when I used an embellie I got from you in a swap - how many years ago? Glad you are back.

Really....no Alaska in the winter....coward!

Congrats on getting the keys to your flat. I know you will be busy unpacking but thankfully for the last time for a while. You must be so excited.

Liberty, I have a friend from Alaska who re-located to New Mexico to get away from the snow. They said you get chilly in the winter. Keep warm!

Busy day at work today. Everyone have a great evening.

Mary, I'm excited that you used the embellie, and glad you remember me! It was probably back in 2010 -- I took a couple of years hiatus associated with the new job and associated move to New Mexico. Side effects of the job include less time for scrapping, but more money for scrappy supplies!

Tammy, congratulations on the new, less temporary residence!

Hey there everyone! Here it is another weekend and Hooray for that. I am even taking a little holiday after the holiday so I don't go back to work till next Wed.

Some of my free time will be scrappy time..

Tammy I know you finally got into your place this week and that is such good news!

Liberty where in NM are you? My goal in life is to live in the Silver City area. I have loved NM since I was just a sprout and it has never gone away.

This took forever - misting drips took 2 days to dry because embosser changed color and warped bgp.

This is at Atlanta Botanical Garden about 10 years ago when they had exhibit with garden-size model trains. I finally kissed the right frog to get my Prince!

hi everyone! Quickk fly by from work - Internet comes next Wednesday.

We have just one room left to unpack (the spare one which will also be where I scrap so none of that is unpacked yet). Hopefully we will get somewhere with that this weekend and I want to go to the City Centre on Sunday as there is a big Christmas celebration on for 4 hours - starting off the shopping season basically.

Hope you are all well and happy!

Hi Tammy! I haven't had a chance to check in for a while. . . how's it going in the new place? Just thinking. . . first Christmas there, that's exciting!

Hope everyone's been doing great. . . I've been so busy in the office, then I'm way behind in getting ready for Christmas (I usually start a lot of stuff back in October. . .ouch!), and now I've got to think about Thanksgiving! The time just seems to be slipping away from me.

Then I'm losing time at home this week, we decided to stay up in town (Sun-Thur morn)- and heading home on Thanksgiving. The kids will be heading to my grandson's other grandmother's house for Turkey, so no need for me to be home cooking one! Which, after looking at the weather report wasn't such a bad idea, looks like we're going to have some rain, sleet, snow or something the next couple of days so I won't have to be on the road for that 50 miles each way this week. That's something to celebrate all on it's own! :-)

Oh SU. . . Scrapbooking University Convention?? That sounds like a blast! I want to scrap so bad. . . but I look at all the stuff I need to get done at home and feel guilty so I stay away from the table. I have a layout almost done and I know exactly what I'm going to do to finish it, so it's driving me crazy!! :-)

Hey All,

Tammy, sorry about the washer but glad to hear you are getting settled.

Now I understand we are all going to Peru? When, where and who is paying? LOL!

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans and a wonderful Hannukkak season to our Jewish friends. I have the driedel song in my head now.

If you are refering to me.....come on up! Although, it is snowing and haven't seen the lights in a week or so. You have to wait until it is really cold. I have only seen the green ones this winter.

I'm thinking we don't have to pay. Marty knows people...big shots who could loan his/her plane for our adventure.

Didn't sign in a couple days and missed the trip plans!!! Haven't been there either, but it's definitely on my bucket list. Now if I get a grant to finish family research I'll be MIA for quite some time. I would like to retrace DH's grandfather's 2-year journey in the Amazon, but I hate bugs and snakes. I'll be glad to have you travel back in time as I continue to chronicle his military assignment to the missionaries.

This is the "Colombian White House" where Gen Acevedo made frequent visits to his friends that served as President of Colombia.
